NEW JETTA IS BETTER
CHOICE OF MODELS AND OPTIONS
VW’S Jetta has not been a big mover in sales, but that should change with the arrival of a six-model line-up with technical enhancements, more comfort and convenience features, a new performance-oriented model and some lower prices.
The revised Jetta range now gets Extended Electronic Differential Lock (XDL) function and a Driver Fatigue Detection System as standard fitment, plus alloy wheels, cruise control and a leather-rimmed steering wheel with MultiFunction Display (MFD Plus).
The new Jetta range starts with the 1.4litre 118TSI Trendline six-speed manual at $21,990 driveaway, or $24,490 for seven-speed DSG auto.
For $29,990 you get the upspec Comfortline with satnav, rear-view camera, front and rear parking sensors, dual zone climate control and rainsensing wipers
The Highline 118TSI at $34,490 has all of the above, plus leather upholstery with an electronically adjustable driver’s sport seat, keyless entry and starting system, 17inch alloy wheels and foglights with static cornering lights.
There’s also a Highline diesel, with a 103kW/320Nm 2.0 litre engine that returns an average 5.5litres/100km and has a six-speed DSG.
Topping the range is the Highline Sport.
It has the 155TSI petrol engine used in the Mark VI Golf GTI and rides on dynamic sports suspension, bigger (18inch) alloys, Bi-Xenon headlights with LED daytime driving lights, LED tail-lights, gearshift paddles on the steering wheel and dark-tinted rear side and rear window glass.
It can scorch to 100km/h in 7.2seconds, yet return an average 7.8litres/100km.
All for $39,990, drive away.
